Hi I'm nearly 3 weeks post bunion surgery and 3rd toe arthritis surgery, I have pins and screws permanently in place. I had my dressings off last week and very pleased with the out come. I am now bathing my foot and keeping my toe alignment splint on for a further 4 weeks and orthotic shoe which is so hard to walk on my back really hurts a
ot and I get so tired and out of breath when walking but I am very stubborn! I'm now only taking ibuprofen occasionally when needed for the swelling which helps. I feel a it of a fraud though as when I go outdoors I need to use my crutches for balance and it eases the pain in my back and foot. I hear a lot of negative feed back on here so I thought I would add I bit of cheer as we've had our surgery and was told the outcome wouldn't be straight away it takes toile and each day is a step closer to our recovery! Stay positive and be thankful it's not a much more serious condition that we've had!
